April 15, 2022 |

In France, AFYREN  advises that plant construction finalized on time and within budget The AFYREN NEOXY plant in Carling-Saint Avold in the Grand Est region is a first-of-its-kind flagship biorefinery that will produce bio-based carboxylic acids from sugar beet co-products. Its industrial commissioning was announced at the end of March, and production will start in 2022. The start-up process has begun, and tests will be spread out over several weeks for a gradual commissioning of the equipment\. Several business contracts have already been signed for sales mainly in Food, Feed, and Flavors and Fragrances sectors.

Today, 60% (by volume) of the organic acid output to be produced by the AFYREN NEOXY plant has already been pre-sold. The AFYREN NEOXY plant will not only produce bio-based organic acids, it will also produce a valuable co-product, which is used as a potassium-rich fertilizer. In May 2021, AFYREN NEOXY signed a partnership with TERRIAL for the supply of this potassium. TERRIAL, a subsidiary of AVRIL Group and SUEZ, is the French leader in organic fertilization.
